The hitch was able to perform as I had intended it to. However instead of using it as a drop I am using it as a rise and it would have been better if I had a 10 inch rise. I am using a front hitch (which I also got from etrailer) to maneuver a trailer into a tight parking space. 836934

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Ball with 10,000 lb Capacity for Curt Ball Mount
    There is a 2 inch hitch ball rated for 10,000 lbs that is compatible with the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. I recommend the 2" Hitch Ball # A-90 because it is rated for 10,000 lbs and has a shank that measures 1-1/4" diameter x 2-5/8 long so there will be minimal excess once the nut is tightened. I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2" Hitch with 7" Rise
    I have just what you need, the Curt Ball Mount part # C45338 which has a 7" rise and is designed for a 2" trailer hitch. This is a fixed ball mount but we have adjustable options, the Convert-A-Ball Dual-Cushioned, Adjustable Ball Mount part # CAB-UM which has built-in cushioning. If you go with the Curt Ball Mount, you'll also need the Hitch Ball part # A-90 for 2".

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Support Gusset Distance on Curt 10K Ball Mount 8-1/2 Inch Drop
    On Curt ball mount # C45338 it measures approximately 5 inches from the center of the pin hole to the support gusset. However, the welds could be slightly different from one to the next so on some it will be less and others it will be more but only by a fraction of an inch. I have linked a video review of this ball mount for you.

  • Does Capacity of Ball Mount Change if Used in Rise Position
    The towing and tongue weight capacity of the Curt Ball Mount # C45338 does not change if you use it in the rise position; it has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing capacity of 10,000 lbs no matter if you use it to get 8-1/4 inches of drop or 7 inches of rise. Keep in mind your capacity is limited to that of your truck and hitch receiver. For example, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C14006 for your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 also has a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and towing...

  • Can Curt Ball Mount Part # C45338 be Used with Tow Dolly
    Yes, if you had a tow dolly that attaches to a hitch ball the Curt ball mount part # C45338 that you referenced would work well with it. For hitch balls you'd want the part # A-90 for a 2 inch ball or part # C40036 for a 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • How to Determine the Amount of Drop Needed on Ball Mount for Towing Trailer
    When determining the amount of rise or drop you will need on the ball mount for your towing setup, you just need to take a couple simple measurements. The first, which you have already taken, is from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver when your vehicle is parked and on level ground. The second is from the ground to the bottom of the trailer coupler when it is also parked on level ground. You did state you took a measurement when the trailer was attached to a different vehicle,...

  • Ball Mount with 6 inch Drop and 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball
    For a 6 inch drop ball mount that would fit the 2 inch hitch of your 2019 Subaru Ascent we have the Draw Tite part # 40346 and then for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you'd want the part # 19261 and you'd be set. The Curt ball mount does not have the smaller ball size available for it since the ball hole is larger.

  • Ball Mount with 8 Inch Rise Needed To Tow Boat Trailer Level
    I recommend the Curt Ball Mount # C45338. This ball mount offers a 7 inch rise, which will put you within an inch of level. This ball mount will fit 2 inch hitch receivers and has a gross towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds. In order to have an 8 inch rise with a high enough towing capacity, you will want the MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70067. This adjustable ball mount has a maximum rise of 8 inches.

  • Recommended Ball Mount with 7 Inches of Rise on a 2014 Mazda CX-5
    If you're measuring from the ground to the inside top of the receiver opening and that is 13 inches, and the bottom of your trailer's coupler is 20 inches, then you'll need a ball mount with a 7 inch rise. I've attached a help article on ball mounts that shows how to properly measure if you need help. For a Class III ball mount with a 7 inch rise, the Curt # C45338 will work for you. It also has a towing capacity of 10,000 pounds with 1,000 pounds of gross tongue weight. For a 2 inch...

  • Ball Mount Needed With at Least 8 inch Drop, 1-1/4 inch Ball Hole Diameter, and is 3/4 inches Thick
    Yes! The Curt Ball Mount # C45338, which has a 7 inch Rise and a 8-1/4 inch Drop, has a ball hole diameter of 1-1/4 inches and the ball hole platform is 3/4 inches thick. You will want to secure this to your trailer hitch receiver with a pin and clip # C21500. You can use either a hitch ball that has a 2 inch diameter # A-90 or a 2-5/16 inch diameter # 19286.

  • 12K-Rated 2-Inch Ball Mount with 8-Inches of Drop
    For a 2-inch ball mount rated for 12,000-lbs that has 8-inches of drop we offer two options you can see on the linked page. Part # 4283 from Draw-Tite provides 7-inches of rise or 8-inches of drop, as does Curt # C45448. Both take a hitch ball, sold separately, like 10K-rated # A-90. This is the highest-rated 2-inch ball we offer. We do not have a 12K ball mount with this rise/drop that comes with the hitch ball pre-mounted.

  • Ball Mount to Clear Rear Bumper on 2013 Toyota Sienna and Provide Close to 7 Inch Rise
    Based on your measurements getting exactly what you need is a little tricky but I have some possible options for you. I can get you close to the rise you need by using ball mount # D-28, which has a 4 inch rise, with hi rise ball # C40034 or # C40032, both of these balls offer another 2 inches of height for a total rise of 6 inches. The tongue weight of the trailer will pull it down a little so at most you would be off level by 1 inch.

  • Can the Ark Articulating Coupler Be Used with an Adjustable Channel Mounting Ball Mount
    We haven't tested using an Ark Articulating Coupler # AR44FR with a Curt Adjustable ball mount like the # C45902 and I don't think this is going to work because of the limited clearance from the hitch ball to the channel. You'll instead want to use a ball mount with a drop like the # C45338 specifically for towing with the AR44FR, since it will allow the coupler to move freely. I've linked an article on how to properly measure for a drop/rise ball mount to this answer in case you're...

  • Ballmount Rise/Drop Needed for Towing Rental Car Dolly with 2015 Dodge Charger
    The closer you can get the hitch ball height to the level height of the trailer (tow dolly in your case), the better. Towing the trailer nose up or down can cause trailer sway, which you'll want to avoid. For best results, you'll want to get the coupler and ball height within 1-1/2 to 2 inches, and it's better to have the coupler slightly lower than the trailer ball than vice versa. A ballmount with a 7-inch rise like # C45338 would put you right where you need to be, height wise. If...

  • How To Carry Motorcycle With 2018 Audi Q3
    Trailer hitch manufacturers like Draw-Tite part # 75218 for the 2018 Audi Q3 do make their hitches to be as strong as possible and to handle more weight then what the vehicle itself can handle. You will still need to follow the guidelines of the tongue weight of your Audi to avoid damage to the vehicle which is in place for any hitch, aftermarket or factory. I was not able to pull up the owner's manual of the 2018 Audi Q3 but if your copy says 300 lbs I cannot recommend exceeding that...

  • Hitch Extended to Keep Trailer From Hitting Flat Bed Truck While Turning
    Since flat beds are longer than regular truck beds situations like yours can occur more often than with a regular truck. Using a longer ball mount or a hitch extender is a viable option. Since the longest ball mount with an 8 inch drop is # C45338. It measures 9-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. If that is not enough length then an extender will need to be used. The use of an extender reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for 2 inch Hitch that Needs Rise of 6.75 Inches
    For the Curt hitch part # 13266 that fits your 2012 Volvo XC70 the ball mount you'd want would be the Curt # C45338 which has rise of 7 inches. With suspension sag from the tongue weight of the trailer this would put you right where you need to be for the trailer to sit level. I also attached a help article on determining the correct rise/drop ball mount for you to check out as well.

  • Gaining Rise With a Hitch Ball
    You can get get a hitch ball with a 1 inch diameter shank that will give you 2 inches of rise with a 2 inch ball # C40034, though that is going to limit your towing capacity to 6,000 lbs. If you needed to stick with a 10,000 lb towing capacity, then you would need a new ball mount, # C45338 for 8 inches of drop, # AMSC6 for 6 inches of drop or if four inches of drop was needed, # AMSC4. I have added links to video reviews of each of these ball mounts for you to take a look at.
